COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bucket Head IPA is an aggressively hopped India Pale Ale. We believe that you should go big or go home. Therefore, we add Cascade, Centennial and Mt. Hood hops buckets at a time to make the biggest of our beers. This copper colored beer will start with a hint of sweetness, immediately followed with a punch in the mouth of bitterness.

On tap at Bangers, Austin. Slightly more malt forward than a lot of IPAís out there which isnít a bad thing, still enough of the hop good stuff to be interesting.

Nice in-your-face beer. Leaves a great bitterness. If you are worried about bitterness beer face, donít drink it.

theisti (4114) - Kansas, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Full pint draft at Craft Pride in Austin, Texas. The pour is a clear copper golden with a smaller white head. The aroma is faint, some sweet floral and general bitterness. The taste picks up some with resin floral hop along with noticeable alcohol. The palate is medium bodied with soft carbonation and a floral sweet finish. Decent, but a bit flabby as it warms.

Rated based on notes taken 22 Sep 2012 -- "Yum". Excessive notes, as you can see. Good IPA though.

3.2
lownote (585) - Austin, Alabama, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Puts brown with a slightly off white head into pint. Aroma is very hoppy. Piny like. Taste is a good malt hop balance. bit of a bitter after taste. The hops are not my favorite, and seem more bitter than flavorful. The malts are a bit toasty. Thin ish body. Bubbly.
